Speaking to HELLO! about having three young sons at home back in December, Jonnie, 47, said: "It's been quite a rollercoaster. You could say I left it all quite late in life. A mate of mine said: 'Jonnie Irwin, late starter, big finisher,' and that is about right!"

He also opened about the difficulties of working away from his family for Channel 4's A Place in the Sun, revealing that in future he would like to spend more time in the UK. He said: "I feel guilty not being here more to help, but Jess is the most flexible person in the world. She's very grounded and takes a really common-sense approach to things.

"Our lives have always been like this, but in the future I'd like to spend more time in the UK."

Jules Hudson

Jules Hudson and partner Tania Fitzgerald are parents to a little boy named Jack. While Jules rarely posts snaps of family life on social media, he has shared several snaps of his five-year-old Jack in the past, and he is such a cutie!
